When we came across this place on Home Away, we were hesitant as we didn't know much about Amalfi Coast and no one that I know of seemed to have heard of the town of Praiano. We fell in love with the pictures and the views that we would get so we ended up booking this place. Praiano is a little town in between Positano and Amalfi easily accessible by bus but we didn't feel the need to travel to the other towns as much as we wanted to just relax. It is a small town, but it is a good place to relax and soak in the wonderful sunsets, which is exactly what we did. We spent our mornings hiking down to the beach (note that there are no real large beach/stretches of sands but more like a dock and cove area) and the afternoons sitting on the terrace sun bathing, reading, napping and eating. The view from this villa really is amazing and there is a convenient bus station to catch to the other towns along the Amalfi Coast. We stayed a few nights in Positano and 6 nights in Praiano and we loved loved loved this apartment. Positano was nice but Praiano had a really different vibe and view and I was reminicient to my days watching the sunset in the town of IA in Santorini. Overall, this place was wonderful, everything was clean and we had everything we needed. The added bonus there is also a sweet old italian lady living above the apartment who would randomly bring us wonderful home cooked food and coffee for no apparent reason when she saw us sitting on the terrace or doing laundry or preparing a little meal/snack to enjoy on the terrace. Really, we had the most amazing time and felt the true Italian family hospitality!
This little villa is a little family run business and Elia and Pietro were a pleasure to work with. We even got to meet Mama and Papa too. Thank you Elia and Pietro and family for the wonderful memories!
